7 Students may elect to take a Clinical Psychology Track or a General Psychology Track. All
8 students are required to take a sequence of core curriculum coursework that emphasizes major
9 academic areas within the discipline of psychology. In addition, students take specialized
10 coursework to either prepare them for the professional application of psychological principles
11 (Clinical Psychology Track) or to conduct psychological research (General Psychology Track).
12 Upon admission, each student will be assigned a faculty advisor who will assist the student with
13 academic decisions during the course of the degree program. Upon admission, During their first
14 semester in the program each students will also meet with the Graduate Academic Advisor to
15 develop a degree plan. , and will then be assigned a faculty advisor who will assist with

18 Student Learning Outcomes
19 Graduates of the MA in Psychology program (both Clinical and General Psychology
20 Track) will demonstrate knowledge of developmental, empirical, physiological and social
21 psychology principals.
23 Graduates of the Clinical Track will demonstrate mastery of the basic principles of
24 clinical assessment and their therapeutic application as well as the ethical use of these
27 Graduates of the General Psychology Track (and Clinical Track Thesis participants) will
28 be able to conduct independent research of psychological phenomenon as evidenced by
29 the results of experiments and projects and successful completion and defense of their
30 thesis in accordance with departmental guidelines.
32 Clinical and General Psychology Track Options
33 The primary education and training mission of the master’s program is to provide a
34 program of study with an applied clinical emphasis to prepare students for the practice of
35 psychology or counseling at the master’s level of licensure.
36 Students who elect the Clinical Track Option will complete the required core
37 curriculum, specialized clinical preparation courses, and will receive supervised clinical
38 practicum experience as part of their training. Upon completion of the program, Clinical Track
39 graduates will meet the necessary qualifications to take the Texas State Board of Examiners of
40 Psychologists examination for certification as a Licensed Psychological Associate. With
41 additional coursework and experience, graduates may elect to take the Licensed Professional
42 Counselor, Marriage and Family Therapist, or Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP)
43 examinations. Following licensure, graduates typically work under the supervision of a licensed
44 psychologist, or as independent practitioners in a variety of public agency and private settings.
45 Students who complete the Clinical Track may also elect to do an empirical master’s
46 thesis in addition to their required clinical coursework. This option may be best suited to those
47 students who wish to pursue advanced clinical training at the doctoral level. In general, students
48 who complete the Clinical Track with a thesis option can expect to take longer to complete the
49 required program of coursework.
50 The purpose of the General Psychology Track is to provide a program of study with a
51 research emphasis. In addition to the required course work, students will conduct an empirical
52 master’s thesis under the direction and supervision of the student’s thesis committee. Graduates
53 who complete the General Psychology Track typically pursue research-oriented doctoral
54 programs or employment in various non-clinical positions within private industry. The General
55 Psychology Track option does not include supervised clinical experience and thus does not
56 prepare the student for any form of clinical licensure.

291 thesis work as soon as possible after being admitted to the program. In consultation with their
292 assigned advisor, the student will select a thesis committee consisting of a chair (primary thesis
293 advisor) and two additional university faculty. The chair and one of the members must be full
294 time graduate faculty members within the psychology department. The student is expected to
295 work closely with the committee chair when selecting appropriate course work and designing
296 and executing the thesis research project (See coursework requirements for the General
297 Psychology Track). In lieu of specialized and supporting clinical course work, the student
298 should take courses related to the implementation of his/her thesis research including Directed
299 Individual Study credits, and psychology or other graduate courses that are relevant to the thesis
301 In consultation with the thesis committee, the student will develop a thesis research
302 proposal. Once the proposal is approved by the chair of the thesis committee, a proposal defense
303 meeting will be scheduled. The student should distribute copies of the proposal to the committee
304 members at least one week prior to the time of the proposal defense meeting. Upon successful
305 completion of the thesis proposal meeting, the student will obtain permission (if applicable) of
306 the institutional review board (IRB) to begin collecting data. When permission is granted, the
307 student will collect data and complete the final thesis manuscript. Once the manuscript is
308 complete, a final thesis defense meeting will be scheduled. The chair of the thesis committee is
309 responsible for scheduling and administering the thesis proposal and final oral defense. The final
310 thesis defense is graded “pass” or “fail.” The student may retake the final oral examination once,
311 with a second failure resulting in termination from the program. When the final version of the
312 thesis is completed and all committee members have "signed off" (approved the document), the
313 student is required to submit three bound copies (with original signatures) of the completed
314 thesis to the Graduate Coordinator at least two weeks prior to the date of graduation.
316 Exit Requirement for General Psychology Track and/or Students Completing a Thesis

318 Psychology Track and/or a thesis. Upon successful completion of the thesis defense, the student
319 will submit three bound copies of the completed thesis, including thesis committee signatures, to
320 Psychology Graduate Coordinator.
322 Exit Requirement for Clinical Track
323 For clinical track students, an oral examination will be given toward the end of the
324 program over a therapy and testing case conducted during their practicum placement. Students
325 are required to prepare a comprehensive written analysis of the case which will be presented
326 during the oral examination with the faculty. Development of this presentation will be under the
327 direction of the practicum faculty supervisor and the final draft of the paper must be approved
328 before the oral exam. The practicum faculty supervisor is responsible for scheduling and
329 administering the oral examination. The oral examination is graded as “very satisfactory”,
330 “satisfactory” or “unsatisfactory.” “pass” or “fail.” If deficiencies are identified during the exam,
331 additional requirements may be added for successful completion of this requirement and may
